LES MISÉRABLES in rehearsals in Estonia
My greatest challenge so far is to re-create this phenomenal masterpiece in the famous Vanemuine Theatre in Tartu, Estonia. LES MISÉRABLES (Hüljatud) began rehearsals September 12th, and we will be working hard until November when this new design will be revealed to the public.
I am working with a huge cast - more than 50 members on stage every night! The main cast includes some of the most famous and talented Estonian performers, such as Koit Toome, Mikk Saar, Lauri Liiv, Kaire Vilgats, Marko Matvere, Maria Listra and Rolf Roosalu. I am extremely happy to direct by debut in Estonia with this extraordinary musical that has followed me my entire life. This production will be my 4th production - previously I’ve been involved in every Finnish production as an actor - from Gavroche to Enjolras. The pressure is high, but I am up for this challenge!
Tickets are selling fast, and Estonia seems to be quite a theatre country. To find more about the production, visit http://www.vanemuine.ee/repertuaar/huljatud/ .
I am living the dream, and my love for my profession grows stronger every minute.
Les Misérables opens November 25th, 2017. This production is also visiting the Nordea Concert Hall in Tallinn from time to time. The official Tallinn premiere is in December 8th, 2017.
